I’m Nicole and welcome to Walker & Co. This site was created as a way to curate and celebrate all the little things life has to offer. Here you will find interior ideas and resources, inspiration for your daily lives and some travel ideas to day dream about. I hope this space provides you with some inspiration for your daily lives and serves as a resource for you to come back to time and time again.
What do you do?
After a few years working in the wedding industry I decided to fully take the step into the design world. Looking back now, this was absolutely in my future. As long as I can remember I’ve always been interested in interiors, redesigning my childhood rooms and always paying a lot of attention to my friends’ homes growing up (probably a little weird for a 10 year old).
It wasn’t until recently that this deep passion was something I knew I needed to pursue. Now I offer design services ranging from in-home consultations, styling and e-design. You can see all my services here.
I’ve always loved thinking about what a space can become, the potential for any space to perfectly suit it’s occupants. I think design needs to be the perfect combination of function and beautiful design. I also believe this can be achieved at many different budgets, and having a beautiful home doesn’t need to be an extravagant affair.
My goal when decorating is to create a ‘lived in’ home. By this I mean a space that is well designed to me isn’t as much about a style but about the feeling it gives, the feeling you get when you’re in it or looking at it.
I love that when done right, my job can bring new light to a space and to how my clients use and enjoy it, and ultimately how they feel when they’re in it.
Did you go to school for design?
I did! I completed a two year interior decorating program with honours. My final projects were selected to be used as examples for future courses.
Why Walker & Co.?
I loved the idea of keeping my last name connected to the company. It holds a special place for me not just as a name, but as a connection to my dad who passed away many years ago. I also wanted the name to feel collaborative as design is truly a team effort, with many people coming together to complete a project. That is where the ‘& Co.’ comes from.
